When thinking about purchasing a rigid sign here are a few options to consider:
Coroplast (4mm thickness) – Purpose: Typically used for Yard or Parking signs (e.g. Real Estate, Election, Reserved For, etc.) Depending on it’s use – material will have to be oriented appropriately to ensure the flutes are vertical, in the case of utilizing an H-stake with the sign. H-stake is best used on a soft ground environment (dirt/soil/grass, etc.) This product once printed, may show a linear effect due to its’ corrugated flute structure. Ink is UV Cured (dried).
Coroplast (10mm thickness) – Purpose: Typically used for Yard or Parking signs (e.g. Real Estate, Election, Reserved for, etc.). 10mm means this sign is 6mm thicker than our standard 4mm Rigid Sign, resulting in a durability that makes this product ideal for use in areas that are prone to harsh weather conditions. At regular temperatures, oils, solvents and water have no effect on Coroplast which also lends nicely to the endurance of the sign. Consistency in quality on the printed surface makes this product excellent for graphics and signs.
Foamcore (3/16″ thickness) – Purpose: Best for 1 time use – it’s a delicate material – but if taken care of – can last longer, but does tend to wilt / bend Multi-Use material – depending on it’s need or use – typical for placing on easels for presentations, etc. Not waterproof.
PVC (3mm thickness -1/8″) – Our PVC Material is a smooth, bright white rigid plastic that is lightweight, yet very durable and weather resistant. They are great for both indoor and outdoor use, and have a low-glare, matte appearance. The print quality is also high so not only can it be used for applications that can be viewed from a distance, it also looks great up close.
